I have two Cisco PIX 501's (PIX1 and PIX2) providing a LAN to LAN IPSec VPN between two sites (SITE1 and SITE2). PIX1 is at SITE1 and PIX2 is at SITE2.
If I ping a device on the LAN at SITE1 from a device on the LAN at SITE2, the VPN tunnel comes up fine. Once the tunnel is up I can also ping a device on the LAN at SITE2 from a device on the LAN at SITE1. However, if the tunnel is down and I ping a device on the LAN at SITE2 from a device on the LAN at SITE1, the VPN tunnel does not come up. I'm sure I've got all routing/static routes setup correctly.
I should have mentioned; the PIX's in question are running 6.3 and the private IP networks at each office are different (192.168.1.0/24 at SITE1 and 192.168.9.0/24 at SITE2).
On this basis I'm not sure that the supplied link is specifically relevant? One other thing, I DID use the PDM VPN wizard to configure both PIX's so I would expect this to have put the correct configuration in place? I can post the config's if it would help.
i have a doubt because i need put two pix in my network, one for the traffic control and another for the vpn (ipsec), so my problem is that i have the same configuration and both pixs and i want to put the ipsec as comment or disable in one pix, because when the other pix fail or is down, i could put up the other ipsec and all to be working good, so my question is how i can put the ipsec in desable and if i have problems with the other pix, i can put enable this ipsec or what is the best idea for this situation
